The package apache before version 2.4.39-1 is vulnerable to multiple
issues including privilege escalation, access restriction bypass and
denial of service.


Upgrade to 2.4.39-1.

# pacman -Syu "apache>=2.4.39-1"

The problems have been fixed upstream in version 2.4.39.




- CVE-2019-0196 (denial of service)

A use-after-free issue has been found in the http/2 request handling
code of Apache HTTPd <= 2.4.18 and <= 2.4.38. Using crafted network
input, the http/2 request handling could be made to access freed memory
in string comparison when determining the method of a request and thus
process the request incorrectly.

- CVE-2019-0197 (denial of service)

An issue has been found in Apache HTTPd >= 2.4.34 and <= 2.4.38. When
HTTP/2 was enabled for a http: host or H2Upgrade was enabled for h2 on
a https: host, an Upgrade request from http/1.1 to http/2 that was not
the first request on a connection could lead to a misconfiguration and
crash. A server that never enabled the h2 protocol or that only enabled
it for https: and did not configure the "H2Upgrade on" is unaffected by

- CVE-2019-0211 (privilege escalation)

In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 releases 2.4.17 to 2.4.38, with MPM event,
worker or prefork, code executing in less-privileged child processes or
threads (including scripts executed by an in-process scripting
interpreter) could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
parent process (usually root) by manipulating the scoreboard.

- CVE-2019-0215 (access restriction bypass)

In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 releases 2.4.37 and 2.4.38, a bug in mod_ssl
when using per-location client certificate verification with TLSv1.3
allowed a client supporting Post-Handshake Authentication to bypass
configured access control restrictions.

- CVE-2019-0217 (access restriction bypass)

In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release 2.4.38 and prior, a race condition in
mod_auth_digest when running in a threaded server could allow a user
with valid credentials to authenticate using another username,
bypassing configured access control restrictions.

- CVE-2019-0220 (access restriction bypass)

A security issue has been found in Apache HTTPd 2.4.x before 2.4.39.
When the path component of a request URL contains multiple consecutive
slashes ('/'), directives such as LocationMatch and RewriteRule must
account for duplicates in regular expressions while other aspects of
the servers processing will implicitly collapse them.


A remote attacker can bypass access control restrictions, or crash a
server via a crafted HTTP/2 query. A local attacker can elevate
privileges to root by manipulating the scoreboard.
